Nevion to unveil enhanced VideoIPath managed video services platform at NAB
MPLS and VLAN network control, inventory management and virtual element management among enhancements to award-winning platform
Oxnard, California, March 5, 2012 – At NAB, booth SU2019, Nevion—the leading provider of managed video services for broadcasters, service providers and government entities worldwide—will debut its second-generation VideoIPath platform, an integrated hardware/software solution for delivery of managed video and audio services.
VideoIPath now brings the ability to control network routing between media edge devices, providing network operators with the flexibility to control network redundancy, bandwidth allocation, and divert traffic around link failures, using multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) or virtual local area networks (VLAN).
VideoIPath now also offers the ability to manage network element inventory for centralized supervision and maintenance functions. Virtual element management provides the ability to access equipment using in-band management, removing the need for dedicated management connections particularly for remote locations or customer premises.
Nevion is also unveiling a new broadcast-oriented user interface at NAB, providing end users with a highly intuitive way to provision and schedule connectivity across the network. The new control surface is designed for broadcast and service provider customers alike.
“VideoIPath incorporates new features that further elevate the ability to manage, protect and provide more flexibile IP-based video networking,” said Eugene Keane, CTO, Nevion. “These advancements are critical to enabling broadcasters and service providers to better monetize content of all types and the networks that transport them.”
Nevion’s universal IP transport module (VS902), providing multi-channel encapsulation of compressed—through industry-low latency, visually lossless JPEG compression—or uncompressed signals for highly protected video-over-IP service remains a highlight of the system. Streaming Intelligent Packet Switching (SIPS) developed by Nevion, is also integrated into VideoIPath, ensuring an even greater level of protection than Forward Error Correction (FEC) through perfect protection switching using dual network feeds.
The new Ventura VS906 solution, providing multichannel audio and data encapsulation for
maximum bandwidth efficiency, is also integrated into the new VideoIPath release.
VideoIPath is a fully integrated system, providing IP video transport for contribution networks with comprehensive, end-to-end control, monitoring and management—all from one intuitive interface. The platform’s managed video services encompass complete provisioning, connection management, bandwidth optimization, analytics, and network inventory.
Moving beyond video transport to fully managed and controlled video networking, Nevion manufactures award-winning systems for broadcasters, service providers and government agencies worldwide. Highly modular solutions encompass IP and optical transport, state-of-the-art compression and routing for any video format over any network infrastructure—within buildings or across continents. With the industry’s greenest and most scalable products, Nevion preserves quality while delivering video from content acquisition through distribution. By creating new service-offering opportunities or minimizing costs, Nevion enables its customers to move, manage and monetize video content.
